For the third day of Blogging Marathon I selected a sweet crispy snack from Sikkim. This is a famous recipe of Nepal and as Sikkim is nearby, this recipe is there in Sikkim cuisine also. I saw an youtube video on making the snack. Before seeing the video I thought that Sel Roti is a kind of flat bread but after seeing the video I came to know that the snack is little hard to make. I made a small batch of the batter and tried it. The first two or three sel rotis had funny shapes but tasted great. Only the last sel roti came resembled the ones I saw in the video. It tasted like achu murukku we prepare in Tamil Nadu. I think there is some connection between North east Indian states and South Indian states as there are so many dishes similar in both cuisines.

Each sel roti had a different shape. It needs a lot of practice to get the shape right..
